The attacks on early Saturday targeted two Saudi Aramco facilities, one located in Abqaiq, near Dammam in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province and the other in the Hijrat Khurais oilfield.
The energy minister also held a meeting with Yasser al-Rumayyan, chairman of Saudi Aramco’s board of directors; Amin Nasser, President and CEO of Aramco; and a number of other officials.
